Do it yourself (DIY) is such a great way for brides to channel their creative side and have some fun. We would always recommend outsourcing where you need to, but incorporating some DIY can also save you some money. We’ve got 6 simple and beautiful wedding projects listed below if you are wanting to add some DIY into your wedding day!
If you’re looking for an affordable and simple wishing well to store your wedding cards, head to your closest IKEA store and pick up one of their Socker greenhouses. Then all you’ll need to do is order a vinyl sticker to give your wishing well a personal touch. These stickers can be ordered online. You can personalise your wishing well with you and your partner’s initials, date of wedding or even your wedding hashtag!

Placing some flowers into a glass jar or bottle is one of the simplest ways to spruce up your wedding tables. Although it seems quite minimal, it can really tie your wedding theme together. When planning your bouquet with your florist, organise some additional bunches and stems. Jars can be purchased from the dollar stores. But, if you are looking for an eco friendly, and more affordable option, save up those pasta sauce jars and remove the label! Using an assortment of jars can also give your wedding a rustic feel (if you are going for that vibe of course). The jars can be used as is, or simply add a ribbon or some hessian as decoration.

There are so many ways to get creative with your guestbook! Having a guestbook is a great way to save some memories from the special day from your closest friends and family, and you can have fun with it too! To keep it simple, create one with a book containing blank pages, such as an art book. For your guests to add in some images with their heartfelt messages, supply some fun decals or a polaroid camera.
Set up a backdrop for you and your guests to have some photo fun! Having a backdrop available at your wedding can be a great replacement for a photo booth. These days, so many people just want to capture photos on their phones anyway! There are many different materials out there to choose from, making it much easier to find one to match your theme. Some ideas include fairy lights for a rustic vibe, tinsel and streamers for the modern wedding or macramé for the bohemian bride.
If you’re having a wedding with organised tables, a seating chart will definitely save you a lot of time directing guests and making sure they’re seated. There are so many ways to create your own seating chart, but one of the quickest ways is to pin cards with the seating arrangements on a corkboard. Spruce up your board with some flowers or greenery. Another popular seating chart we’ve seen is a frame with horizontal strings attached. Then create some seating cards which can be clipped onto the strings.
